Takeaway pints should be banned to respect residents living in local areas around the country.
Independent Kerry County Councillor Niall 'Botty' O'Callaghan says there is no need for them.
The publican and Killarney representative told Newstalk Breakfast we all need to get along this summer.
"If we want outdoor life to continue over the course of the summer, then we have to co-exist with both other businesses and with residents.
"And I think the takeaway pints in the first step towards doing that.
"I don't think there's a need for takeaway pints, and we respect the town we live in - it's not an image that we would like to portray for Killarney because Killarney's a family-friendly town, it's a safe town.
"I can understand if young people, or anybody, walking up the street with plastic glasses in their hand and older people coming down the street it can be a little bit intimidating.
"Walking around with plastic cups and stuff is not an image that we want for Killarney.
"I think it's a national issue, I think the Government need to just stop the sale of takeaway pints.
"The outdoor dining could work but we all need to co-exist: the publicans need to co-exist with our neighbours in the retail sector, we also need to respect the residents of the area.
"And, at the end of the day, the people living in the towns all over Ireland they have to be respected.
"Greed should never outdo quality of life".
The Government had made moves to ban pubs from offering takeaway pints last November.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin was in discussions with the Ministers for Justice and Health, with Stephen Donnelly's department asked to draw up new regulations.
While in January there was talk of an 'alcohol curfew' to curtail the practice.
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said at the time: "We're working on new public health regulations that strengthen the law in this regard around drinking alcohol in public streets, and that will give the Gardaí more powers of enforcement".
But he said the actual sale of alcohol to takeaway was not the issue.
"When it comes to selling takeaway alcohol, that's not illegal - anybody who's getting their takeaway... you can get your bottle of wine or bottle of beer with that, nobody wants to ban that.
"So what we could potentially do is ban the sale of all alcohol after a certain point of time in the day.
"It's that type of thing that we're looking at", he added.
